New studio facility in Atlanta could boost statewide location filming
Work begins today on a new studio in Atlanta, Georgia. Atlanta Film Studios Paulding County will span 11 acres close to Atlanta’s city centre. Production has increased in the state in recent years and the plan is to continue the trend by offering new sound stages by the end of this year.
When it’s finished, the studio will offer two 20,000 square-foot soundstages, as well as nearly 40,000 square feet of production offices and construction space. Georgia counts itself among the top five states in the union for production activity and it’s clearly planning to build on the 440% production increase recorded between 2007 and 2010.
RoadTown and Paulding County look to build upon the county’s recent ‘Camera Ready’ designation by the Georgia Film Office.

Atlanta Film Studios and consulting firm RoadTown Enterprises said: “RoadTown and Paulding County look to build upon the county’s recent ‘Camera Ready’ designation by the Georgia Film Office, and its success accommodating the production of major feature films such as Footloose, Get Low and Joyful Noise within the county.”
An income tax credit of 20% is available to eligible productions filming throughout Georgia and credit of an extra 10% can be accessed if a film actively promotes the state in some way.
